The PLENTY-LIFE project will focus on establishing an innovative methodology of stakeholder-based holistic integrated spatial and energy planning (HISEP) methodology. HISEP comprises building capacity of SMCTs in the field of integrated urban energy planning to enable them preparing and monitoring long-term sustainable energy strategies and plans tailored for their specific conditions to manage the clean energy transition and achieve carbon neutrality by 2030/2050.
Besides, it aims at Institutionalising the HISEP methodology that implies a cross-sectoral planning process -integrating energy system with other development sectors- to plan the energy transition towards and achieve sustainable and efficient carbon neutral SMCTs.
